Ink sketches – people

We went to Andorra for a week of snow and ski recently. No skiing though, since there wasn’t any snow except for that made by snow canons. The girls did ski, but H(love of my life) and I passed on that one, so we did a lot of other sightseeing. One thing we did frequently, was going to the sportcentre where H could make use of WiFi available. It may sound like he is a workaholic, but he is as passionate about what he does in life as I am about doing my art. He loves his job, so his computer and notebook and pen and paper go with him, like my stuff travels with me. So, while he “WiFis and calculates and designs, I draw and write and read and watch the world go by and of course, we enjoy a cuppachino or two. The spoet centre was a great place – a big complex with indoor pools, ice skating rink, tennis courts…and a cafeteria. I did these drawings while having our coffee. The first sketch is the “food corner” in the house we stayed in.

Sprout – Ill. Fr.

 

I chose the Brussel sprout, but now it looks more like a broccoli to me. Well, they’re both green and healthy….
